When I apply a keyword to a photo I have to manually add the containing keywords.  How do I get them to add automatically.   For example ;   If iI have a hierarchy of  Plant > Flower > Rose > Tea Cup and I click Tea Cup , I have to manually add Plant, Flower and Rose. Tutorials indicate that should happen automatically.  I have tried setting it to "Keywords and Containing Keywords but it makes no difference

You've tagged the post with the Cloudy version of Lightroom, but the settings you describe are only found in Lightroom Classic. Can we just clarify which version you're using please?

Assuming it's Classic, what happens when you set that pop-up to Will Export?
